Domain creation and deletion in Weblogic Server

Posted by Srikrishna Murthy Annam on May 11, 2011

In the present demo, i am going to show you how to create and delete a domain in weblogic server.

Assume that you have installed weblogic as specified in the article <Place Holer>. The next step is to create a domain. Domain is the basic administration unit for Oracle Weblogic Server.Everything that we do in weblogic, everything that gets configured such as administration server,the managed servers,connection pools and data sources,cluster machines,applications that get deployed, all of the security settings; all of that information is contained within this administrative unit that we call it domain.

Domain always includes one weblogic server instance,which is configured as being the administration server. So, there is a one-to-one correspondence between domain and an administration server.An administration server only serves one domain, and a domain always has exactly one administration server in it. Then you can optionally have additional managed servers,so you can have zero or more managed servers within your domain.

The central point of control for a domain is the administration server. That, usually what happens when we have a domain is we start the administration server first,the administration server will go out and read its configuration information from a folder in its domain structure called the config folder. So the administration server goes out and  reads the config.xml file,which essentially tells it how to build all of the Mbeans.

The following demo shows you how to create a domain in weblogic server 10.3.4 and delete it.

Please watch this demo and give me your comments.
